Introducing Debbie Aramide: A fresh faced singer/songwriter from North London, determined to make her stamp in the UK’s music scene.
From the age of six she has been crafting her talent, attending theatre school, trained by Tameka Epsom and has become a regular performer at Somerset House, now as 22 year old law graduate, she has performed at LoveBox Festival, opening for artists such as US chart sensation Aloe Blacc and Dionne Bromfield for over 3000 people.
“Trying to balance being a law student and a performer is very difficult, if I’m not in the exam room, I’m in the studio. My passion is always knocking on the door, I’m writing constantly, singing along the road, whenever it comes to me, it comes.”
As a critically acclaimed upcoming artist after the recognition of her self-produced mixtape Breaking Point (2009), Debbie is now preparing to promote her new EP, The Tide. Being influenced by Toni Braxton, Beyonce and Coldplay, Debbie describes her sound as being indie meets soul.
“This EP definitely shows my growth, not just as a person, but as an artist. My first self produced song had more of a pop, soulful house beat; the material on The Tide is an influx of new energy, that’s elements of a soulful/indie vibe. There’s more thought into the lyrics now, a definitely more mature sound from my previous work.”
The Tide is available in Autumn 2011.
